Hi yall. Most (or some) of you know I've been taking extreme baby steps to get through my panic... I am severely agorophobic. I hate being farther than 15 minutes from my house.
WELL today I drove 25 MINUTES from my house... and guess where I went?
THE MALL!!! I went into the book store and then I was having the worst panic attack and every step I took I was more and more convinced I was going to faint. (The Ativan was obviously not working)
I told myself that if I could make it through the mall to the other side I could by myself a pair of shoes. haha
SOOO I made it into a mall, and it was SO busy and I was FREAKING out but I DID it... even tho I had a panic attack while I went through it.. I slowly got past the panic attack after about 20 minutes (thought I was going to die.. really) and then started to calm down.
Soooo I got a little shopping that I had left done... and I was happy about that...
I just thought I'd share that all with you...
today was a hard day... after I got home I had to take a two hour nap... baby steps though!!!
